  • "A beautiful little cosy cottage with great views."

    Although the garden at the back of the property is shared with the rest of the cottages on the row it was quiet and peaceful. The river was an added bonus! The cottage is in a great location to explore the Lake District.

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location."

    The cottage was very comfortable with a high standard of cleanliness. The garden was exceptional, with lovely views of the surrounding area and the river. Parking was on the roadside on a first come basis. There is plenty to do, with the Lake District within a few minutes drive.

  • "We had a great holiday and really enjoyed the cottage."

    It is in a quieter area of the Lake District but not too far from main roads, the lakes, the sea...and there are plenty of things to do in the area. The cottage is a good place to relax in (or sit in the garden if the weather is fine). It is equipped with all we needed for our week's stay.

    Thank you for your positive comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "The main issue for us was that there was no freezer, as we brought food with us."

    The nearest place to shop was 5 miles away.

    So sorry about the freezer issue. The cottage is small and we were unable to find a place to put one. It sound like you may have missed the great butchers, bakery and small convenience store located in Greenodd, just 2-3 miles away. I do hope it didn’t spoil your holiday Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at No7."

    The cottage was really comfortable and clean and the location was perfect for us... In a lovely quiet village but close enough to all the places we wanted to visit. Also, the garden is lovely with the river flowing past, although the weather didn't really allow us to enjoy it!

  • "The pictures and description of the cottage sounded lovely but when we got there it was even better than we expected."

    Lovely clean cottage equipped with everything we needed. Very comfortable beds which is really important to me! The location is truly stunning. The shared outside space is beautiful with fabulous views over rolling hills, and a river at the bottom of the garden. I felt I had come to my heaven! I spent hours sitting reading in the garden soaking up the views, sounds and general peaceful ambiance of the place. The neighbours were lovely and friendly and gave us some good advice about the locality. The pub almost next door was also great with pleasant staff and tasty food. Plenty of beautiful walks in the locality so we hardly had to drive out except to get groceries. The host was also lovely and couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating. I would definitely book this cottage again. We had one of the best holidays here…I’m missing it already!

    Thank you so much for your comments Jason. I am so glad you had such a wonderful time at our cottage. Property Owner

  • "A nice, small terraced cottage, with great shared riverside garden."

    Would recommend to anyone who wants to visit the southern parts of the Lakes. Reaching the northmost peaks may be a little far for some. There are only two things to consider: parking outside the flat is slightly awkward but alternative parking is only a short walk away. No shops within walking distance as stated in the description. On the whole we had a great summer holiday at the Lakes

  • "This was a really nice, well equipped cottage."

    The location was lovely, in a small village in a valley, with a river at the bottom of the shared garden. The cottage was well placed for exploration of the outlying fells of the South Lakes. It was only about a 30 second walk from the pub, which had real ales on tap and great food on the menu.

    The village we stayed in was lovely with a small friendly pub nearby and in the mornings we were woken by lambs across the road which was quite nice. The cottage itself was lovely and the landlord had thought of everything we'd need. The place was immaculate throughout and there was instructions for every device in the place. I would recommend staying here to anyone.

    The cottage was lovely, the kids asked to live there. The cottage itself was so clean, warm, it had everything we required and more. The stable door at the back of the house was lovely each morning to open the top half so you could look put and feel the cold crisp air and hear the sounds of the river. We managed a couple of walks that were in one of the books, in thd property. The neighbours were lovely. Two pubs close by were very friendly and welcoming. We had a wonderful time here x

  • "Lovely cottage, well appointed and ideally placed for getting around the Southern Lakes."

    Everything was exactly as described and I appreciated a call from the owner a few days beforehand. They have recently installed a stable door in the kitchen, which is a lovely touch for the warmer weather. The only thing that would improve it would be a small freezer - we missed not having ice for drinks. Luckily the barman at the Royal Oak, helped out in the hottest day.! Would definitely stay again, it was a great find, we especially loved the views out back.

The property

A cosy mid-terrace cottage, formerly homes for the local bobbin mill-workers, located in the sleepy village of Spark Bridge, just 5.5 miles from Ulverston.

This comfy cottage enjoys views across the river to the rear, and is just ten minutes’ drive from Coniston Water on the boundary of the beautiful Lake District National Park.

As soon as you step inside, you’ll immediately feel welcome.

The open plan living area, with its cosy sitting area and kitchen/diner, provides a perfect place to settle together.

A stable door opens onto the garden, with steps leading down to extensive shared lawns, garden chairs and benches and the River Crake.

With lovely accommodation, which has been tastefully enhanced to maximise the original features, the cottage offers one double bedroom, one twin bedroom and a shower room on the first floor.

Outside, at the rear, there are open grounds shared with the rest of the terrace, which stretches down to the river.

Just a short walk takes you to the village pub and benches on the village green alongside the River Crake, while two miles up the road in Greenodd you will find a couple more pubs, a bakery, a butcher's shop, a fish and chip shop and a convenience store.

Being ideally situated on the edge of the Lake District, there are lots of beautiful areas to explore, including the quaint Lakeland village of Hawkshead, which is just 20 minutes drive away, whilst from the cottage itself you can step out and enjoy numerous paths and bridleways running through spectacular countryside.

For a fun-filled family day, why not pop over to the Haverthwaite and Lakeside Steam Railway, and embark on a steam train to Lakeside, before joining the Windermere Steamer for a cruise up the most famous lake in the district?

This charming cottage will make an excellent base for friends, families and couples seeking a character holiday home.
